  1. Projects Penguin Inlay Medallion for Headboard

    When I built my granddaughter's convertible crib in 2019 (delivered the day she was born), I embedded a replaceable teddy bear inlay medallion in the headboard, thinking I could update the bed with something age appropriate as she grew. Well, years passed, and just as she moved from crib to...
  2. Mahogany Carved Twin Bed

    Ladies and gentlemen, This project was born somewhere at the local IKEA. I realized there that I wanted a simple and practical bed with the feel of beautiful real wood, chopped, carved, and finished myself. Here it is: Honduras mahogany - I didn't want to spend time working on a cheap...
  3. Headboard

    I made this headboard out of pine and birch ply. I added LED strip lighting to the underside of the top for reading in bed purposes. From start to finish it took me eight weekends. The face-frame is joined together with biscuits, and then glued onto the plywood backing. This is then pocket-hole...
  4. Bedroom furniture

    Childhood twin beds and dresser. After years of storing the twin beds in the basement, I decided to use the hard rock maple wood!! So, after six weeks, I had the two night stands done. Then used the remaining frame, cut to half the length for dog bed! Then, driving home I spotted a dresser on...
  5. Craftsman Headboard

    I made this for us out of quartersawn white oak. I finished it with TransTint Reddish Brown in alcohol so there would be no raising of the grain between the spindles. Ingenious design to moun the spindles inside of a box joint strip. Looks like an instant antique. I'm making a dresser to go...
  6. Mini Woodworking Bench

    I was asked to hold a French Polish seminar at our Mason Dixon Woodworkers Club Meeting. I knew that it would be impossable to do some examples using the plastic food tables that they had there. I had a piece of Maple Bowling Alley left over from my kitchen remodel so I dug it out and found...
  7. The first Pallirondack Chair

    So this is where the name "pallirondack" comes from. I made my first Adirondack-style chair-and everything else I've made so far-from 100% recycled pallets. I found a design/plan online (thank you California Redwood Association) and modified it to work with wood from pallets instead of cedar...
  8. Farmhouse Headboard

    I was commissioned to make a farmhouse dining table with breadboard ends from 2×6's a year ago. Now, the same person wanted a headboard to match it. I used the same methods to build the headboard as I used for the table. After doing some sanding I used biscuits and glued up the long boards. I...
  9. Mother's Day Headboard (last year)

    This was the wife's mother's day gift for 2016. The headboard was inspired by a Fixxer Upper episode (the picture with the blue pillows). It was made with left over 2×6s and 1×8 pine. The rough lumber was a little difficult to work with, but I think it came out ok.
  10. Headboard

    This project is made of 3/4" Oak Plywood and trimmed out 3/4" oak. My wife wanted a headboard that was thin, funtional, and most importantly, able to use it as a backrest to read in bed. So, this is what I came up with. The "backrest" is a couple of cabinets which are angled back 15 degrees for...
  11. Palletwood King Size Headboard

    This is my first commission piece that was completed this past week. It measures 78" x 48" and has white oak posts. It is finished with Min-wax natural stain (1 coat) and 4 coats of spray lacquer. I was pleased with how it tuned out.
  12. Another Discontinued Headboard | Custom

    This is another one of those discontinued headboards from Pottery Barn. It was finished in August 2012. They call it the Stratton Smart Technology Headboard. Same story as before the customer purchased the platform form PB with the intention of coming back and buying the headboard later. When...
  13. Farmhouse Bed and Nightstand

    Rustic farmhouse bed set made for a family member. All made from fur and construction grade material. Bed was built to last and can be taken apart and relocated. They needed a new bed and didnt want to spend $1k on a store bought item that would fall apart in a few years. The side tables were a...
  14. Reclaimed Wood Bedroom Set

    This was my "great white buffalo", the one project that got me hooked on woodworking. I was required to take a sculpture class in college as part of my art/graphic design major. This was the first time I was exposed to working with wood and woodworking tools. My wife and I were getting married...
  15. Red Oak Headboard and Footboard

    Made this bed from plans in the book Furniture For All Around the House. Book is several projects from other Taunton Press publications. The plans were by Jeff Miller. Had a few questions about the plans and emailed him. Responded with answers that were helpful. Except for the wood species...
  16. Headboard for the bed

    This is the headboard I made for my bed. The last two pictures show the 2×4 structure I used to wrap with pine. Most of it is wrapped with 1×4 standard pine and some 1×6 as well. I used a 2×6 for the top with a cove profile routed along the bottom edge. I stained it with Old Masters...
  17. Padded Headboard

    Last summer my wife went away for school and since I was all alone (and bored) I figured it'd be a great time to make something for her. So I made her this headboard, using the lessons I learned building a poker table (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/12587) The frame is a hollow MDF box with...
  18. Headboard

    First attempt at a headboard. I picked up multiple pieces of tongue and groove blue pine from the cull bin at our local Home Depot. When my wife asked me to make a headboard for a room we just converted into a bedroom I decided the blue pine would be perfect for the job. The tongue and groove...
  19. Oak Headboard from reclaimed wood.

    Here is a headboard I made for my wife. The post are solid Oak 4 ¾ x 4 ¾ x 7' tall. Again money was tight so I used what I had. The headboard is actually a piece of ¾ ply with ¼ inch oak ply sliced up into 3 ½ inch wide pieces and glued together. I used the back side of the ¼ ply that had a lot...
